4. An ideal solution to controlling the composting process, ...

is pre composting food scraps, plants, and manures then allowing eisenia foetida (red worms) to convert the feedstock into natures best organic fertilizer. Done correctly, the methane problem is greatly reduced and the need for carbon generating production of fertilizers, both organic and oil based, is greatly reduced. As well the carbon produced by transportation is reduced.

It does take space, and attention to detail, as well as a small amount of time.
